The judges cannot answer questions about the cases because of ethical rules. However, students will be encouraged to ask questions of the judges and attorneys about the process, the Court of Appeals, and the judges themselves.
The Court of Appeals has made it a relatively common occurrence to hold oral arguments around Nevada as part of its educational and outreach efforts. All Court of Appeals arguments are public hearings open to all interested citizens.
